Subscription Requires Sacrifices: Insiders Warn of Game Pass Price Increase Due to Call of Duty

The Rumored Next Game from the Series ‘Call of Duty’ on Game Pass Set To Cause Changes in the Microsoft Service

Multiple insiders are indicating the imminent arrival of the next game from the series ‘Call of Duty’. Being included in the Game Pass subscription at launch is expected to cause changes in the Microsoft service.

The Wall Street Journal recently reported, citing sources in the know, that Microsoft intends to add the new ‘Call of Duty’ to Game Pass right from the start of its sale.

Simultaneously, sources from The Verge in early May conveyed that Microsoft had deliberations about adding ‘Call of Duty’ to Game Pass from the day of its release, and this was in exchange for a further increase in the cost of Game Pass Ultimate.
